and rotation, align objects to the terrain, and render the current view into an image and to enter full
screen mode. You can find the Control Bar on the top of the 3D viewer.
It displays all the objects in Wireframe, which increase the performance most of your system.
Drag-and-Drop to Preview Window
Instead of using the Content Manager or Import methods to load your assets, you can drag and drop
them into the iClone Preview Window from your system explorer.

quickly load them into iClone.

select the desired action for how the media is applied.
• Image or Video: If you want to apply an image or video to a specific channel, please select
the To: XXX entry, where the XXX is the material name of the target object, and select the target
channel in the submenu.
Drag and Drop Mesh Objects
You can drag any object with meshes such as Actors, Props, Accessories, Terrain, Sky... etc. into
iClone to load it at the location you drop it.
Variations of Accessories
If you drag and drop an accessory file (.iAcc) on an actor, it will follow the accessory's conventional
behavior; if dropped on the floor, it will become a prop.
